Hi everyone as part of my garage make over I am adding a ton of storage. I am trying to determine the best way to make a counter top for a set of garage cabinets that I made. I was thinking two sheets of MDF glued and screwed and laminating the top with Formica. I want it to be stable, flat, and easy to clean up. The counter top will be permanently mounted and have some T-track and a Fence added at a later date. My SCMS will be set into the cabinet so that it is flush with the top. A dust hood and a few other goodies will be created and attached later on.
I made the cabinets in a hurry as I have a small space to work with and breaking down and storing sheet goods is an issue. I am going to sell the car in the other half of the garage and that will fix the problem but until then it is what it is. The cabinets are very basic butt joints with cabinet screws. They are solid enough to do what they need to. The problem is the plywood was warped a bit (it was sitting awhile and from a big box store). I need to make sure whatever I use I can level and then attach to the top so that I have a flat surface. I have about 1.5 inches of height available.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I will post pictures when it is complete. I’m building the cabinets in two stages. The left side to house my new Festool goodies (will post pics when done) and the right side to hold other misc stuff.
